LA Galaxy continues to negotiate with Boca Juniors for Cristian Pavón

The Los Angeles Galaxy are making a late push to sign Cristian Pavón on a permanent deal before the year-long loan ends on 1 January 2021, but time is running out. The 22-year-old is currently in Argentina celebrating the holidays, but if no deal is reached he has to return to Boca Juniors.

According to journalist Tom Bogert, LA Galaxy and Boca Juniors are in ongoing negotiations over a deal for Cristian Pavón. On 24 December it was informed that the MLS side had given up on the deal because Boca Juniors was asking $20 million for the offensive midfielder, a sum that has never been paid in the history of Major League Soccer.

According to transfermarkt his current market value is $16.50 million and Boca Juniors will only accept an offer close to that number. So the five time MLS Cup winner is trying to bring the price down in order to complete the signing.
